  1. how many phone lines have you broken?

    3 all in the same tree, hit a phone cable with the stump grinder knocked out and entire close.
  2. Salt spreading over the winter

    Not really mate we had several inches on the Granite Belt last week.. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-07-17/thick-snow-blankets-southern-queensland/6626630
  3. Grounds maintenance

    Its like anything in business, if its profitable it will be worth doing if not don't bother.
  4. Ploughing ....how times have changed

    Over here its all about sugarcane thousands upon thousands of hectares. They plant billets directly no till. I guess much of it goes for ethanol.
  5. Ploughing ....how times have changed

    I'd forgotten about balance ploughs Mike, looking at the way they operated I'd think they were responsible for the removal of many old and ancient hedges...
  6. Ploughing ....how times have changed

    Little Fergies only used to pull a double, plowing and on very heavy ground a single, plowing with a crawler was popular for a while
  7. 7.5 ton or 10 ton?

    If I was starting over a hgv would be first priority, as for the question 10, 12 or even 14 tonner with crane would be my choice. I had a 7.5 ton Isuzu great lorry for filling with chip and never went over loaded, but ideally you need a crane in this game you won't fit ond and carry more than 3 ton if fitted to a 7.5 toner. As for 3.5 toners they're a waste of time and effort, I learnt through the hard way..
  8. Best truck for dedicated stump grinding business

    A predator, hmmm has to be somthing French
  9. Forum Watching Thieves?

    If somebody accused me of stealing something which I hadn't I'm afraid we'd have resort to sorting things the way old fashioned way!
  10. Whats the weather like near you?

    We're all those long hot summer school holidays with the odd thunderstorm really just in our imagination?
  11. Whats the weather like near you?

    Sorry lads 24c here today blue sky, not bad for winter...
  12. JK Rowlings hedge

    The UK has a horrible culture of knocking those that have done well, I'm a staunch socialist but I have no problem with wealth just as long as they pay there dues.
  13. Hi from new member and advice on starting in arb

    The inexperienced can expect dreadfully low wages to start with sadly its part of the game...
  14. Tree surgery abroad

    Having been in this game for 28 years plus I have to agree with Mikes words. Choose an easier way to earn a crust mate
  15. charging interest on late payments...

    If its under the whatever value it is these days, fill the paperwork in for a small claims court hearing.
